Metcalfe County Sheriff Rondal Shirley is listed in stable condition at T.J. Samson Community Hospital, according to a spokesperson for the hospital.

Shirley reportedly had a heart attack last week.

Whether an interim sheriff will be appointed to fill in for Shirley while he is recovering has not yet been decided.

“I will go under the advisement of the sheriff and if he wishes for an interim sheriff to be appointed, we will,” Judge-Executive Don M. Butler II said. “My office will assist in anyway necessary to support and continue the duties of the sheriff’s office.
